Political Battle Looms As Trump Health Care Bill Heads To The Senate

Political Battle Looms As Trump Health Care Bill Heads To The Senate

The contentious debate over overhauling the health care system shifts to the Senate and a moderate Republican, Sen.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he isn't anxious about the possibility of Republicans losing congressional seats in the 2018 midterm elections in a voter backlash to the bill to replace the Affordable Care Act. So, these Republican governors may be putting pressure on Republican senators to reject what the Republican House did.

US President Donald Trump says Obamacare is "essentially dead" after the House of Representatives passes a Republican healthcare bill. Such a scenario would force the House and Senate to work together to forge a compromise bill. Susan Collins suggesting her chamber will shelve the recently passed House measure and "start from scratch". He supported Medicaid expansion in his state and called the House bill "woefully short on the necessary resources to maintain health care for our nation's most vulnerable citizens".

Democrats are convinced the GOP repeal bill jeopardises the Republican monopoly in Washington, starting with majority control of the US House, and the party's advantages in state houses from Nevada to New Hampshire.

Happy Monday, dear Home Health Care News readers. They have failed to include adequate funding to deal with coverage of pre-existing conditions, they have punted many costs to cash-strapped states and they have failed to tackle inflated prices charged by pharmaceutical companies for basic medicines. Collins also complained that the House rushed a vote before the Congressional Budget Office could complete its cost-benefit analysis.

"I think that the Republican Party will be rewarded", said Reince Priebus, Mr Trump's chief of staff.

Mr Obama defended his signature achievement in Boston on Sunday night while accepting the John F Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.

And many of them remain defiant amid the barrage of attacks from Democrats, who have insisted the House bill would make acquiring coverage more hard for people with serious ailments and disrupt insurance markets - and who see in the Republicans' efforts a chance to reclaim the House majority next year.




House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he was not concerned about political fallout because of the vote.

Democrats are virtually certain to unanimously oppose the Republican effort to repeal much of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Trump said Sunday on his Twitter account, just days after the House narrowly voted to repeal the seven-year-old health law popularly known as Obamacare. I am calling Sen.

Collins said she'd like to see a bipartisan group in the Senate working on a bill, with Democrats acknowledging that Obamacare has problems and Republicans making sure that coverage is not reduced.

The ACA expanded Medicaid with extra payments to 31 states to cover more people.

Republicans insist the American Health Care Act will be an improvement over Obamacare. That bill was covered by insurance because she is under 26 years old and still on her parents plan, a provision of Obamacare.

The bill will now face the Senate, and Kasich hopes senators rewrite the bill to be more comprehensive.

Ryan, speaking Sunday on ABC News, used language not ordinarily heard from free-market, anti-entitlement conservatives like himself.
